Pacific BioEnergy and its’ employees observed this year’s National Day of Mourning at a Safety Meeting on April 27th (April 28 is the official National Day of Mourning). The company feels strongly that taking time for a moment of silence to honor the lives lost on the job. Last year, 158 B.C. workers died from a workplace injury or disease.
The annual occurrence is especially important for employees at Pacific BioEnergy as our industry has sustained catastrophic events that resulted in shaping safer work environments for each of us. Observation of the annual National Day of Mourning also provides extra incentive to stay focused and diligent when it comes to safety both at work and at home.
